65 itemsWelcome to Square Dances Without Calls

Square dances without calls is instrumental music that was made for square dancing. During the square dance boom of the 1950s many musicians were mobilized to form bands and record who would not have been recorded otherwise. Most of these were made when records were still in the 78 rpm format. This collection of recordings can be used for square, round, and contra dancing. Many of them came with call sheets, or cue sheets containing the intended dance instructions. In some cases a vocally prompted version was also made. If you are a musician, you can listen and learn from these files. If you are a dance facilitator, you can practice with them. If you are a dancer, you can dance to them. The easy access of this format allows you to quickly sample to find something you like.
